Natural Parenting

I try to be a kind mama.  I try not to yell.  I try not to demand.  I try to be patient.  I try, but it doesn’t always work.  When it doesn’t work I try to make it right by being honest and owning my mistakes. I practice gentle discipline and I respect my children.

I breastfeed my children until they are ready to stop.  I am an advocate of breastfeeding in public.   I am not ashamed to breastfeed my 4-year-old.  I encourage others to breastfeed and to breastfeed in public if you are comfortable.  I really hope that breastfeeding is normalized when my babies have babies.

I believe in kindness.  I believe in respect.  I know that my children are people and they deserve my kindness and respect.  I am in no way a perfect parent but I try to do the best for my children, myself, and our family.  When I am wrong, which I often am, I say that I am sorry.

Here are some of my parenting posts.   I hope that you enjoy them and look forward to making new connections, please comment if you feel called to.  <3
